Published May 19, 2011If you thought the prospect of Chilly Gonzales writing and producing the "first-ever all-orchestral rap album and live show" was a little out there, wait until you see the music video that accompanies a medley of songs from the album.
While the concept of meshing a bunch of orchestral rap songs together might sound unappealing, it actually works surprisingly well, coming across like a mini-mixtape showcasing what sounds to be like some excellent album tracks. The visuals, on the other hand, are totally WTF?-worthy, albeit completely worth watching. Gonzales's head is merged with hand drums and statues, while the video goes on to feature bizarre shots of him as the president and inspirational footage of flowers blooming.
Check out the video for below. The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales will be available on June 7 via Arts & Crafts.
